Our Best Answer: What is the First Year Institute?

First Year Institute Program (FYIP)

The First Year Institute Program (FYIP) provides a variety of courses and support services for new and first-year continuing students, including free basic skills classes you can take prior to the start of a semester. Newly admitted students take the CUNY assessment tests, and their scores will determine eligibility for FYIP.

Information about FYI is distributed after Placement Testing and posted on the new student's LaGuardia VIP webpage. All FYIP courses, instructional materials and services are offered to eligible students at no cost. Enrollment is limited.
